completed my PhD in January 2017 at Imperial College London in the Department of Earth Science and Engineering, where I was awarded the Janet Watson award for research excellence. My scientific research focuses on patterns of biodiversity and extinction in deep time, and the biological, geological and environmental controls of these patterns. Apparently, I seem to have also developed a keen interest in the evolutionary history of crocodiles and their ancestors

As of the beginning of 2018, I have gone rogue/independent, and spend my time doing a combination of research, talks/workshops, travel, scientific communication and consultancy, and working on my own projects.

I am extremely passionate about science communication, public access to scientific knowledge, and the wider impact of scholarly communication on society. I’m also deeply interested in current trends in open science.
